So, I was pretty excited to hear back from Cliff Wallace a few months back, when he initially expressed interest in hosting a solo show with us. Not only would I get to see where this incredibly imaginative, and prolific, artist worked, but also I would get to visit London (again)! I have such a dynamic relationship with London, ranging from hating it when I visited for the first time, all the way through to my complete desire to move there. These days, I satiate myself with a weekend trip ever 6 months or so (an advantage of living in Norway). But this was a business trip, the first time I could really say that in many trips to come.
Besides talking over 3 hours about God knows what, his studio was a superbly pleasant experience. It was a bit unsettling to be sitting in the middle of all these creations, as they were ominously placed facing towards the couch Cliff and I sat on to discuss his future show. I felt like there was no way I could make a mistake here, or else one of these things would come and find me later on in my dingy 16,000 bed dorm room later on. But I must have said something pleasing, as not only was I not attacked by Hellish fiends, but I also was able to procure Mr. Wallace’s involvement with the gallery for future months.
But now those ‘future months’ are here! Next week, to be exact. And we have so much lined up for his visit for the weekend he graces Oslo, so keep tuned on our facebook page for the most relevant news updates.
On Friday, January 24th from 18:00 – 21:00 is the opening exhibition for the show, which runs until February 23rd.
On Saturday, January 25th at 14:00 is an presentation, Q+A and small portfolio review.
We are negotiating terms and times for, possibly, an open forum discussion with panel, to talk about the film industry today. The event will be Saturday night, with details to come, but will certainly have food and drink available, for those who needs alcohol to talk openly and confidently….
In the mean time, do not be afraid to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or inquiries.
